The Institute for Environmental Analytics is an exciting new environmental “big data” analytics start-up venture, hosted by the University of Reading and involving partners from the private and public sectors. The IEA focuses on applied R&D and the development of innovative data applications and services in a range of market sectors.

The IEA would like to employ up to two motivated individuals to  join a vibrant team on Whiteknights campus on paid internships.  Interns will work on a variety of projects, according to our current needs and the interests and skills of the successful candidates. Projects will involve a variety of tasks including, but not limited to:

  • Data analysis (in languages such as Python or R)
  • Software development (e.g. the development of web applications in HTML/CSS/Javascript)
  • Developing data visualizations (for the web, desktop applications or videowall)
  • Market research into relevant sectors (e.g. researching existing products or “hot topics”)
  • IT infrastructure support (e.g. setting up cloud computing services)
  • Writing documentation describing the results of the project
  • Giving presentations to clients and collaborators
  • Contributing to material on websites and social media, e.g. writing blog posts

Candidates who are interested in working in any of the above areas are encouraged to apply. Examples of our recent projects can be found on our Projects page and our News page. Internships are expected to run for two to three months over summer 2017, but we can be flexible with the start date and duration of positions.

We are committed to having an inclusive and diverse workforce and we welcome applications from a wide range of candidates. These internships may be particularly suitable for current undergraduate and postgraduate students, recent graduates and people looking for a career change or returning from a career break. (Positions are unfortunately not open to current school students.)
